If you live in New York like me, you might be convinced that you are indeed in the land of endless winter. Honestly, some days I feel like I have been permanently transported into a snow globe. For the last three months we have been completely surrounded by snow, waking up and walking to work amidst a show of snowflakes has become the new normal.

India and the Cricket Fever

India Cricket Team

Over the years, Yankee Stadium has become one of my favorite places in New York. This has nothing to do with my affection for baseball, the B train, or the Bronx—rather, it is the energy of the game and its spectators that draws me there each spring and summer. The lights, the music, the fans, the crowd’s constant buzz that crescendos into a roar when the Yankees step up to bat…these create an invisible electricity that amplifies each dimension of the game and viewing experience.
